April 25, 2014


04/28/14 DONALDSON – Reverend Dr. Sam Boys, Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Ancilla Collge, was the guest speaker at the spring semester’s closing Lampen Lecture Wednesday afternoon.

The title of his lecture was “God’s Household” and was timed in conjunction with the celebration of Earth Week at the Center at Donaldson. Specifically Boys addressed how to see and understand God squarely in the center of ecology and environmental concerns. 

“The presentation God’s Household offered a God-centered approach to the changes we humans need to embrace to provide a future for generations to come,” explained Sister Carleen Wrasman, coordinator of mission integration at Ancilla College. “This God-centered approach reverences the Creator and cares for creation.”

The Lampen Lecture Series is free lectures open to the public and is held in Room 231 at Ancilla College. The series was named for Sr. Joel Lampen, the first president of Ancilla College, who opened the doors of Ancilla to the local community. 

The Lampen Lecture Series was designed to combine the universality of the Catholic Church, the international character of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, who sponsor Ancilla College, and the Earth Charter to promote thinking beyond one’s own experiences and interests.
